  1. Well, my local WM finally got rid of all the Shang chi wave figures, not sure how and I don’t really care...but hopefully this means some new stuff will be coming, either Ursa Major wave or infinity saga
  2. From what i've read it sounds like Johansson does get a cut of the D+ premium access money. Her lawsuit relies on the assumption that same day release hampered movie box office by more than $60 million (or whatever D+ made.. .plus all the "piracy") thus damaging her earnings potential, particular if her contract specified a theatrical release. Disney seems to be trying to work public opinion by portraying Scarlett as a greedy celebrity (which ok, i'm sure she is somewhat) but while ianal it sure seems like Scarlett has a case, and tbh i'm surprised Disney didn't give her whatever $$ amount she wanted just to avoid bad publicity or damage to the brand. Especially if Disney views BW as a one-off situation and are thinking Shang-chi, Eternals etc wont have same day premium access release on D+. I would think going forward to future mcu movies (and really movies in general) that big stars will start to have covid clauses in contract in case the movie ends up streaming same day and thus they dont earn the box office potential they might otherwise.
  3. Yeah i am sure a lot of people who were unable to get the WG FF for one reason or another will be all over the retro wave as it is a much more familiar costume for many fans and of course evokes the byrne era. I'm a bit unsure about the FF's popularity these days so i'm not sure how the wave will sell but i guess the super-skrull wave did well enough. I found it interesting that an "influencer" (ugh) asked the team if they had considered making waves that tie-in to haslab projects, and the team suggested that they viewed HoX/PoX and the upcoming retro FF wave as sort of tie-ins to Sentinel and Galactus, respectively. They also referenced how much of an influence Byrne-era "starving" Galactus was on the project (especially in terms of the scale).
  4. yeah the refrain of not wanting to create "fear,doubt, and hate" was a pretty big giveaway. Although i think it was already heavily rumoured or leaked that he was coming
  5. Binary looks great but when will Walgreens actually start selling some of their exclusives?
  6. I like the looks of Captain Carter and zombie cap. Not a big fan of the animated look of some of the other figures. The watcher is pretty disappointing but since i wouldnt want to buy most of this wave I’m not too upset over it, especially with the select re-release coming
  7. I could see them extending the deadline if necessary but doubt very much they would lower the price. But yeah certainly they will promote Galactus during today’s event, and perhaps tell us some of the tier levels altho it seems doubtful they will reach more than 1 or 2 at this point
  8. You are probably right about the mcu figs altho i wonder if Cassie as Stature would be too much of a spoiler to include it in the wave. Good choices for the comic selections but those make too much sense for hasbro; there's gotta be a random serpent society guy in there or something
  9. Yeah i think it makes it but i'm not sure the numbers will merit any of the extras. i think they got a bit too ambitious but hey its an awesome galactus figure anyhow.
  10. Looks great. i'll wait and see if i can catch him at a markdown price/during a sale, though.
  11. I thought someone had asked Dan or Dwight and they had indicated the shoulder holes would be filled in on the final product, but I could be wrong
  12. Finally picked up Katy as she's on clearance at my local Target for $6.98. There's a chance she could drop to $5 if i waited longer but the current deal was good enough for me, and i know sometimes they all just disappear at a certain point rather than undergoing further price reductions. Anyhow, all i'm seeing anywhere is Shang-chi wave remnants. WM hasn't marked them down altho Target has. It kinda feels like BOTBG wave came and went already (?) and that now waiting for Iron Man wave to show up and maybe some of the anniv sets. THe only figure on my must-get list at the moment is Ultron. Along with Nova & Quasar but, you know. Otherwise will hope for some sales to pick up some of IM wave and the anniv sets.
  13. I’m not sure how hiring a black actor to play a black character constitutes tokenism as far as the director, just a continuation of marvels usual pattern of hiring up and coming, talented directors usually known for indie work or smaller films , while relying on 2nd unit for action scenes. I would call that smart hiring rather than tokenism but I suppose if all you do is look at the ethnicity and/or gender, then that is all you will see. that said, no familiarity with this director but marvel has generally made good choices. Feels like hiring Alan Taylor to direct the 2nd Thor movie is their most recent misstep but that was many years ago
  14. *shrugs* Galactus isn't an army builder, and let's face it x-men collectors is probably the largest subset of ML comic figure collectors so it doesn't surprise me that the numbers for the Sentinel rose more quickly. That said, imo Galactus will definitely be made, even if hasbro has to either extend the deadline or lower the threshold below 14,000. I'm sure many people will wait until close to the deadline so they can see what kind of extras will be included (and of course many require some time to get a spare $400 together). And i dunno, i can't think of too many other huge characters that are popular enough to merit haslab treatment. I don't think Giant Man or Fin Fang Foom would cut it. I could see them going in an entirely different direction next year and trying to do a vehicle or a role-play item instead.
  15. not in my budget but can't deny its a nice figure. i think i'm good with the marvel universe version unless i get a big influx of cash unexpectedly. I don't really get how someone can view this as hasbro screwing people over but they can't really win with some people no matter what they do, i guess.
